You know, you really must work on this. How long have we been talking and you’re still surprised at the simplest things. Or is it not surprised? Startled? Perturbed? Terrified?
Or all of the above? It’s quite all right, of course. I believe half the reason I can shock you is because you keep forgetting.
Who you are dealing with. What you are dealing with. I have been around the block so many times, before there was a block. What did you think? That you could understand me in the space of a conversation? Pay attention, boy. There is much more to learn.
You have plans.
Our ways are many and various. What? We’re not allowed to be creative?
To what end?
Oh, but don’t you already know the answer to that question?
I’m not sure that I do, no.
What do you think? What do they say?
I think you want to corrupt people.
But why? What purpose could it serve? Because I have gathered the full meaning of your question, haven’t I?
You want to know the endgame, right?
That I cannot tell you. Oh, come now, you didn’t expect it to be that easy? Besides that’s the end of the story, you’re in the middle. Let’s not ruin it. Ah, but as to the fate of individuals, well, that reaches conclusion much faster. 70, 80 years.
You want to corrupt a person. So that, what? They go to Hell?
Oh. My. Boy. How little you know. You think we are the reason for that? That we conquer people? That we somehow convert them to our side? You think that’s how the game is played?
Well, maybe it is time I let you in on the true nature of where I come from.
